Hornets Paste Pacers (158-126) With Record Scoring Performance in 2nd Half

Defense, anyone? The Charlotte Hornets blew the doors of the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night with an 87-point second half and a 158-point clinic to headline a busy night in the NBA. Charlotte was 58.1 percent from the field while cashing in a franchise record 24 threes. Kelly Oubre Jr. led all scores with 39 points off the bench, including 10 threes. LaMelo Ball (29-13-10) added a triple double and six Hornets players scored in double figures. Their 158 points were a franchise record and the most in the NBA this season. A team hadn’t scored 87 points in a half since 1991. Those were some busy bees…
